Cuesta College

Cuesta College is the recipient of more than $40,000 in incentives from PG&E for making energy-efficient upgrades.

These upgrades included installation of new, energy-saving LED lighting at both the San Luis Obispo and North County campuses.

Arroyo Grande

Sunset Savor the Central Coast, owned by Visit San Luis Obispo County in partnership with Fast Forward and Sunset magazine, have donated the event’s Farm to School garden and Monarch Butterfly garden to Ocean View Elementary in Arroyo Grande. Both gardens were gifted in partnership with the city of Arroyo Grande and were prepared, delivered and planted by Cal Poly student Rachel Maiorino, and parent volunteer Josh Carmichel.

Other garden contributors include Arroyo in Bloom, One Cool Earth, Farm Supply, San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden and Bruno’s Greenhouse.

The gardens will educate students about the best growing practices and provide students with hands-on learning about cultivation.
